Forums for decision-making on issues where a consensus can't be reached or isn't sufficient. The committees are chosen from among the official team members, but to ensure an open and transparent decision process it's publically viewable.
Neandertaler klebten Werkzeug mit Urzeit-Uhu
Forscher haben einen 40.000 Jahre alten Klebstoff entdeckt, mit dem Neandertaler ihre Werkzeuge reparierten.
Scientists discovered 40,000 years old glue Neanderthals used on their tools; the two compounds (ocher and bitumen) apparently had to be fetched from far away locations, adding complexity to this achievement. I think this lines up nicely with ~recent discoveries that the Neanderthals were capable of much more than they were given credit for earlier.
I just finished two more Han texts that I had started some time ago. With that we've now entirely finished the Han, our third civ. @ShadowOfHassen and I decided to get back to the Greek civs, we will do the Macedonians next and then maybe the Ptolemies and Seleucids in parallel.
Here is the PR: https://github.com/TheShadowOfHassen/0-ad-history-encyclopedia-mod/pull/121
The Battle of Mobei:
And the entire Han Xiognu war: (it's the longest text I've ever written, maybe I should split it up into multiple texts)
I'm also still working on the new encyclopedia page UI, adding some more features. I think I'm close to finishing a good-looking prototype.
